Toshiba DB-EA4D Recommended Settings
For a Toshiba DB-EA4D printer without a peeler, the recommended firmware is GENT4 version 0046. [GENT4MAIN_0046.bin]
For optimal printing, Minisoft recommends our proprietary print driver for the Toshiba DB-EA4D printer. Our print driver has the following benefits:
- Connect directly to Linux, HP/UX, AIX and iSeries systems without a Windows print server.
- Improved resolution (no re-scaling between the document and the printer).
- Easy parcel shipper connectivity.
- Reduced file size and increased print speeds.
To configure Minisoft’s proprietary print driver, simply switch the Toshiba DB-EA4D driver to Generic / Text Only. If the Generic / Text Only option does not show up in the drop-down menu, select New Driver and add it.
